Help on Budget Build from MicroCenter

Hi guys,
I'm building a Budget PC for Day Trading (Stocks). I need 3 monitors.
1. Productivity > 2. Graphics
I don't mind if it's AMD or Intel.
Is this a good build?
Can you recommend a better one with same price range?
Can you recommend a cheaper one with the same performance?
Thanks in advance.

  2. Thanks for the replys.

    Don't I want a 6gb/s hard drive or a ddr3 1600 RAM?

    Don't I need a PCIe 2.1 for that Video Card?

    I'll try to price match at MicroCenter, if not I don't mind paying a little bit more.
    I'd prefer to just buy it and make it today.

    SATA3 (6GB/s) isn't really necessary and the Samsung HD103SJ is the best "bang/buck" drive on the market today.
  4. is the biostar mobo with the x4 840 the best mobo out of the few combos they have?
    since its the same price i was just wondering which one was better
  5. Oops actually go with the Gigabyte 760G for the same price - escaped my radar the 1st time hehe
